Dia de los Muertos Photo Shoot


Yesterday I hosted my first styled photo shoot and I’m thrilled that everyone has been so enthusiastic about it. There are so many incredible shots of these beautiful models and it’s difficult to pick a favorite!

I couldn’t have done this event without the help of some amazing people and I’m so thankful for them!  The makeup was created by Drop Dead Gorgeous Artists and the models looked epic! Beautiful gowns were provided by fashion designer Kasha Faye Designs and gave the shoot an extra glam vibe. From cake to rings to flowers and all the other important details I was able to reach out to my friends for help and they really delivered!

For this shoot I put on my creative hat and designed the headdresses and hat, hand painted the grooms jacket, and wrote in calligraphy on the invitation envelopes. I came up with a concept for a succulent garden on the cake table and I’ll be sharing that in a future post.

To see more photos from this shoot from the other photographers go to #ddlmshoot2017 on Instagram.

Now it’s back to editing photos!
